Had this at Sweetwater during a brewrey tour, then bought some a week later.
At first, I liked this as it was different. When I purchased a six pack, it did not seem as good. The pils malt was overpowered by the saaz haops, which to me, gave it a skunky flavor. I may buy more in the future as I may have purchased from a bad batch, but if it is the same, this beer is not to my personal likings. It's not a horrible beer, in fact, this could be a decent gateway beer for Bud drinkers. It is just does not please me.

3.38/5 rDev -2.6%

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, slightly hazed, corn-yellow coloring with a ton of slow carbonation in the body, and a fluffy, dense, small bubbled, white head. Aromas of citrus sweet, bubblegum, toasted grains, subtle herbal notes, and some nutmeg and clove spice. Flavors are sweet and herbal forward, with a subtle cracker and bread backbone, and lemongrass, clove, and all-spice highlights, with subtle tart citrus characteristics. The herbal tones overpower a bit, and there is subtle hops bitterness that enhances that imbalance. Light, effervesced body, that moves close to astringent as the beer leaves your palate. The aftertaste is lemon-citrus and heavy spice, still. Dry, again almost astringent, finish.

Poured into a glass.
A-cloudy gold color, well carbonated with a 1 inch white head forming, looks good.
S- creamy peach/orange aroma. Hints of what seems to be pineapple? Probably not but thats the best description I can think of for it
T-broad citrus flavors present, not much in the aftertaste, kind of a dry finish
M-medium bodied, very smooth
O-Everything was there for me but the taste didn't seem to correlate with the other features. I like it.
